Party music embedded here and impossible to stop. Annoying? Yes. But pretty much what it will feel like at the party. Better get used to it now! ;-)

One of the main reasons why conferences are so important to attend are the parties around it. As you probably know the parties are perfect places to really connect with people.

This year you get great value for your money! Apart from 3 days of great content and inspiring people (see which companies are joining), we have a full party schedule for you.

Get ready to party:

Tuesday evening:

17:00 – 17:30: Drinks
Enjoy a beer in the bar of Felix Meritis to finish off the first day of the conference.

20:00 – 01:00: Opening Party – Powered by PayPal X
Come and join us for the Official Opening Drinks in Hotel V. A lot of international guests, and most speakers are staying at this hotel. They have a nicely decorated lobby (very stylish) where we will have our own DJ playing some next level tunes. Last year we ended up standing outside drinking past midnight. Don’t miss this!

You can find the hotel at: Weteringschans 136, 1017 XV Amsterdam.

Wednesday Night:

The Next Web goes Wolvenstraat! There are 3 parties in 3 bars next to each other:

Dinner @ Brix 19:30 – 21:00 (book a table via +31206390351 -mention TNW-)
Party @ Brix 21:00 – 01:00 (First drinks by Waze)
– Book your table at the Brix via +31206390351 and mention TNW

Dinner @ Loup 19:30 – 21:00 (reserve a table via +31 20 3307470 -mention TNW-)
Party @ Loup 19:30 – 01:00 (interested in sponsoring drinks?)
– Book a table next door at Loup via +31 20 3307470 and mention TNW

Dinner @ Wolvenstraat 19:30 – 21:00
Party @ Wolvenstraat bar 21:00 – 01:00 (First drinks by Rummble)
– Can’t reserve a table so just make sure you are early.


The Wolvenstraat is our favorite street in Amsterdam and we love to hang out, have dinner and drinks there. For dinner you can book your own table with friends or new business contacts and make it your own side event.

Make sure you mention The Next Web when you reserve a table because otherwise they’ll tell you that they’re fully booked.

Thursday Night: Queensnight!

We will end the conference with party/reception sponsored by Microsoft at the conference venue. We will have a DJ there, free drinks and some snacks. It will be a nice closing event where we can wrap up the conference and get started with Queensnight.

And what a party it will be! Unlike any other party you have ever been to! Join 1+ million dutch people in the center of Amsterdam for Queensnight. The party starts in the evening and doesn’t really end until almost 24 hours later.

We all join again that evening at the BRIX, Loup and Wolvenstraat bar in The Wolvenstraat around 19:30. No telling where it will end so make sure you join us at the beginning.
